• I’m a multi-disciplined, ideas-led graphic designer and graduate of the Kent College of Arts. I work with iconic brands, corporate leaders and start-up enterprises – producing a high standard of graphic design that is driven by bold creative thinking.

    I think graphic design should provoke a reaction, using meaningful and relevant ideas to engage with your audience and leave an impression.

    I am a designer and a thinker. I like to doodle, drool over fonts and pour through design.
    Designing web and print interfaces has to be one of the most challenging and rewarding careers. Requiring constant upgrading of knowledge, meeting demanding deadlines and finding solutions to criticism.

    That’s why I love it. Chances are, you’ll find me either in front of a computer screen, i strive to marry the love of web and graphic design by finding a harmonious balance between functionality and aesthetics. Part-time music aficionado, lover of all things design, food fiend, and dreamer. .

LinkedIn for designers

LinkedIn for designers and other creative professionals it’s the most overlooked and probably the most powerful tool you can have in your personal branding/digital marketing toolkit. 

I first joined LinkedIn when I was a designer at KHL Group 10 or so years ago. At the time it was little more than an online phonebook that allowed you to add contacts and your work experience; for a couple of years, I simply treated it as such. 
 
Whenever I exchanged business cards with someone, the first thing I did was simply transcribe the information to my contacts and send an invite via LinkedIn. Over time though, LinkedIn has evolved to become the professional profile of record for most white collar professionals and became the primary means for me to credential myself to prospective clients and showcase relevant work, experience, and expertise that set me apart from the competition. 
 
In recent years LinkedIn has incorporated many features that makes it a perfect platform for designers and creative professionals. The ability to add visual polish to your LinkedIn profile and incorporate various types of media formats to showcase your work gives you an unparalleled opportunity to market your skillsets directly to prospective clients. 
 
It only takes a few minutes and keeps the professional relationship positive, keeps you top of mind, and generates goodwill.
